More Wildflowers

I have become totally obsessed with taking pictures of wild flowers. I've been having some problems using the macro feature on my new camera but through trial and error I seem to be getting better results.

I found these pretty flowers while walking along the pipeline with Tucker yesterday. I haven't been able to find them in my flower books. They have beautiful heart shaped petals with a yellow centre.


.......a long stem with 2 or 3 flowers on each stem.



The leaves are grasslike and are at the bottom of the stem and they seem to like rocky soil in open areas. I would love to know what they are called. ???



Crackerberries (a.k.a Bunchberries) are starting to flower.



Lily-of-the -valley ......Lilies of the Valley......Lily of the Valleys.......argh!!!! You get my point.



I know I showed a wild strawberry on a previous post, but I thought this was a much nicer picture. Now if I could only figure out why this one came out so nice........

Paula says . . You have intrigued me Deborah with that white flower. I looked it up in my book, but it is only a pocket guide. I am going to check it out at the public library in their flower books. The hunt is on. . .

Paula says. . That picture of the little strawberry plant with the moiseture droplets on the leaves and the sharp focusing on the flower is absolutely stunning. It makes one feel fresh just looking at it.

Those macro shots are really coming along. I wish I knew your secret, I'm not having much luck with mine.

I wish I knew how I did the macro pictures too. then maybe I could do it again. The mystery flower is called Mountain Sandwort.
